(from the back cover) Welcome to Stow, a picturesque New England village
preparing to face the new millennium while keeping its roots firmly planted
in 300 years of history. Primarily a farming community for. much of its
existence, Stow's country-like character is still evident in its open spaces,
most of which are now apple orchards, golf courses, and conservation lands.
Within these pages, you will discover the classic charm of Stow's village
center, with its pristine white church, town hall, library, and its one and
only traffic light: Take a leisurely stroll past row upon row of apple trees,
and learn how early settlers utilized the power of the area's small brooks
and rivers. Here golfers enjoy the relaxation of four beautifully kept golf
courses and nature lovers spend hours exploring Stow's many hiking trails.
Compiled by Lewis Halprin and Barbara Sipler on behalf of the Stow Historical
Society, this collection brings to life over a century of memories to share
with future generations. The magic passport for transportation into Stow's
unique past is right here in your hand. To operate, just grab a comfortable
chair, prop up your feet; open this book, and embark upon a fascinating
journey back in time.
